Singapore Airlines will be providing flights for Dreamtime 2013 attendees from key South East Asian markets, including Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Singapore, as part of the sponsorship.

“With their extensive network and established presence in many of our key markets, particularly within South East Asia, Singapore is an ideal airline partner for us to be working with to help bring about another successful Dreamtime 13,” Mr McEvoy said.
“We have worked closely with Singapore Airlines for some years now developing strong campaigns and activities that successfully market Australia, and having the airline so closely involved in this year’s Dreamtime presents another great opportunity to continue this great collaboration.”
